From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

Wow! What a difference in weather a month makes. I and my wife were digging in cold, wet, mucky weather wearing three layers of clothes and parkas practically. That was teh week of April 10. So Spring did actually arrive at Vindolanda. I have some great pics of bare trees and muddy trenches

That's the good old british weather for you MBetz but i do have to be honest we did have i think one afternoon of rain!...

Or did i just make that up :D ...

Historical Novels
Quote:
 
Other works: 'The Last Legion' (Manfredi), all about how Romulus Augustus (the last Western Emperor) is rescued by the survivors of the one and only 'old-style' Roman legion (recently perfidiously destroyed). Leaving aside the fact that such a legion in 475-6 would be much like witnessing a Union Civil War regiment fighting in Iraq just now, the novel was so terribly awful--wretched style, historical inaccuracy, and terrible character development--that I actually enjoyed it. Read the whole thing on a BA flight to the States, and binned it at O'Hare Airport. Miss it if you can, and if you watch the film due out next year I shall personally cite you for extreme courage and will buy you a drink of your choice.


Your so right about that book mate it has to be one of the worst if not THE worst book i have ever picked up!...

But i am a little sad one off my all time fav books is "Eagle in the snow" by Wallace Breem..First picked it up a few years ago and do so every six months or so...

So you can see why i'm a little sad :D ...
